My Life at P.E.S

This year is a very important year of my life. This is my last year at Pt England School, i am gonna miss that school. It is my last time in that uniform. I really enjoyed hanging out in class with my mates and the best teacher Ms Tito.

I am really gonna miss my friends but not that much. Because I live on their street and we are very close. My best friends are very kind indeed, they are very talented, sporty and other kind of different things.

I would like to say a THANKS to all those teachers who supported me in everything I tried hard in. Thanks for helping me, when i’m stuck on something thank you for everything you taught me.

Next year I am attending Tamaki College. It is gonna be awesome cause I know it is.

Having a netbook connected to the internet helped my learning  this year. It really helped me learn my 12x21 times tables. I really enjoy using the internet because it helps people when you're stuck or if you need help.

We don’t just learn from our teacher’s, we discover it by ourself. One day I was planning to bake cupcakes with my little sister Jessica. The only thing was we didn’t know how to bake, so I decided to go on the internet to discover how to make cupcakes.

This year my friends taught me using an Ipad. They taught me this site called ‘’Bomb It’’, it is a game when you kill a robot with bomb’s.

How I helped kids this year. I helped a few, playing sports, Hyperstudio and other things.

I am good at managing myself, thinking and also participating.

Nelson Mandela

From his birth in 1918 until 1941, Nelson Mandela lived on the Rural Eastern Cape. He went to university of Fort Hare, Nelson Mandela studied first for a Bachelor of Arts at the Fort Hare University.  

Nelson Mandela stood up to his country (South Africa). He told them it wasn't fear for the black people, which they all hated their life's, because it was a formal split. He change the world from being a split by specking the truth out. One of Nelson Mandela quotes - ''No one is born hating another person because of the skin, or his background or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite''.

This year we have been using our netbook, for 3 years by now. I have been created by different things I have learnt on the internet. My teacher Miss Tito has been making sites for us to go and learn about maori and other different things. This year I learnt how to create new friends and communicate with them online.

My fun times in the Holidays!

BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! goes the radio, as the bass was up loud. Listening to Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball while we were in the car going to pick up my Aunty (Noreen). Going down a deep hill, everybody went quiet until Stop party time by Afroman came on.

And all you see was my cousin (Karen) bogging on the left side on the seat, Nek Minute all of us started to boggy hard and cracking up but the cars at the back and on the side of us was looking at us and stared for long, like in our heads we are saying (‘’what just have fun’’). Later on everybody was so tired we needed water!

So we stop at Burger King to have a feed and went back on the road to pick up my Aunty. Finally we got to my aunt's work in Mangere, we were 15 mins late so she was angry because she was waiting at work for us.

But we still had fun!

Basket ball

As we walked into Selwyn College Basketball courts we saw lots of colours representing schools, I was so amazed. Seeing lots of people,  warming up made me and our team nervous.
It was like we were gonna come 5th in our place.  But our plan was to beat our boys because they came 3rd.

It was time for us to warm up on the court. We done a shooting line and a rebound like the shooter shots into the hoop and then the rebound person gets the rebound.
I was the main shooter in our team and the others were the defender’s.

Finally it was time for our first game, we were all warmed up and we were all ready to play B-ball known as Basketball. As we said our cheer, we went to defend our player but the rule was 1 on 1. The bell blew as we were all started to call for the ball. My partner was very good, it looked like she played repts. Everybody was so hot, sweaty and also desperate for water.

‘’Few’’ I said to my friends, because it was a hard and fast game. I finally understand what it feels like playing Basketball.

FInally it was the finals we won all our game to make it into the finals we thank the lord who put us into the finals. Dribbling the ball up and down the court made everyone tired, because the ball was going up and down into the hoop and there we go 5 seconds on the clock as everybody started to play faster, finally the hooter went as all of us started to cheer because we came 1st. :)

I wrote a little song for all of the people who likes basketball :) hope you enjoy
NOw Basketball is our favorite sport,
I like the way they dribble up and down the court.

Cross Country

''On your marks, get set, and Go'' as Mr Burt said, as all the Yr 8 girls all started to jog in one pace but some girls sprinted of like wild animals. As I ran out the gate it was slimy, yucky and also muddy. I couldn't run as fast as I could because the mud was slowing me down, like I had bricks suck towards my feet. Luckily my cousin Alexandria catch up to me and so we just jogged together. Finally we were on our last lap but I was so tired, which I didn't want to try my hardest I just wanted to have fun. 

Finally I got to the finish line, crossing the finish line with 6th place huffing and puffing.  
''FEW'' I said to Roezala as she ran up to me and started to hug me. 

Takitimu cheer 
''Ahahr You know who we are, Takitimu Takitimu Takitimi x2

Going to Matariki (Trail Lights)

Walking into the Maybury Reserve saying, ‘’WOW this is cool’’ to Serena as she says to me ‘’I think the fireworks starts at 9:00 on the dot’’.  Walking straight on to the new path they put their, Seeing lots of people walking past us until we saw Ata and Dillon it made me and Serena think (there must be lots of Pt Englanders there). We stop and stood there to have a chit chat with the police because ‘I wanted to know much about how to become a police women’.

It was 8:45 and everyone was placing their chairs and blankets on the grass waiting for the fireworks to start. Everyone screaming and shouting with there mates and family. As it was 8:59 everyone was already ready for the fireworks, As the man who was speaking on the mike cofone told everyone to start the countdown, everybody was so overwhelmed. Shouting and laughing counting down from 10 once it hit 1 everyone said ‘’Happy Matariki Day’’.

‘’PING PING’’ go’s the fireworks in the air as everybody were like ‘’WOW thats a cool’’ and other things. It was awesome. Once the fireworks stopped everybody thought it was time to leave but N O the fireworks was still going. As it was time to leave everybody was saying that ‘’That fireworks was better than towns?’’.

The boy felt determined and nervous while he was climbing the deep towering mountain. Thinking in his head, “Phew finally I made it, I can see the dojo up ahead, I hope I
make it in”.Standing in front of the enormous door made him anxious,, trying to improve to the Sensei that he could do better, he sat down and meditate for (Day and Night). The boy got ready to do his karate lessons so then he stood up and suddenly kicked the door opened.

Para 1:
The boy felt determined and nervous while he was climbing the deep towering mountain. Finally the boy made it up to the top, with his muscles aching feeling exhausted. Thinking in his head, “Phew finally I made it, I can see the dojo up ahead, I hope I
make it in”.  

Para 2:
Walking steadily he thought about what should he do once he
gets there. Standing in front of the enormous door made him anxious, as the sensei opens the door slowly and quietly, suddenly he pointed at the sign. So then the little boy thought wrong.

Para 3:
As the boy turned around sadly disappointed with his shoulders dropped and his head fell. He really looked upset once he was walking back. Trying to improve to the Sensei that he could do better, he sat down and meditate for (Day and Night). The boy was still meditating when the Sensei came out slowly and the boy stopped, but the Sensei still pointed at the sign, the boy thought all along that he was saying ‘’GO AWAY’’.

The boy got ready to do his karate lessons so then he stood up and suddenly kicked the door opened.

One Little Sick Pig

Once upon a time there lived an old pig called ‘’Eifiona’’, She  was so sick because she had the worst flu ever. She lived alone in a small house which was built in the 80’s with straw. She had no friends and whanau, because she did not know how to makes friends and her relatives had all died in the 70’s. She was one of the laziest pigs ever. She was so tired to wash her face, brush her teeth, tidy her bed and also have a shower. Everyone hated her because she smelled bad. She hadn’t had a shower for her whole life  (she didn’t even know what a shower was).

One day she went for a walk because she thought it would help her flu go away. After her walk she sat down at the park for a rest. A boy named Richard was walking past with his dog. As he walked past she said,”Oh what a cute dog.”  Richard thought it was strange that a smelly old pig dressed in clothes would talk to him, but he felt sorry for her because  she kept coughing because she was sick, Her sickness was  turning worse

The flu was going in the air spreading to Richard. And in  New zealand to other people everybody was getting sick. Except the wolf, The wolf came to Eifiona house to blow her house down but the wolf knew he would've get the sickness so the wolf blew the whole lot of New Zealand down but the air was only going threw the city’s going to Australia. Later on everybody was fine they didn’t have the sickness again and Vanessa learnt to have a shower.

Literacy Post!!!!

This term a few weeks ago the senior block has been doing a morning session of Literacy, Reading, Writing and also Art. We had made a better start with our learning.  Thanks to our great teachers who had planned this for us.

A few weeks ago we got put into groups like A1-27, A2-27 and also A3-37. I got put into A3-37 with my friends, Caroline, Grace and also Vanessa. Every morning we start school at  8:30 am so we can get on fast with our learning. My first group which I got put in to was ART it was a awesome. People got lost because they didn’t really listen to the (TEACHERS) about what group they are going in.

Going to Art made me wonder if it was going to be hard?.  As soon as everybody arrived we started to do our work. First Miss Tito told us what to do and then we follow through. Obsessively people didn’t know what to do and what we are not meant to do. My friend Grace was being lazy like she was half asleep, It made me wonder what time did she go to bed.

Later in after we done our Koru and Kowhaiwhai we packed up to watch PENN.


It was a cold, dark night and I was alone in a strange house. Suddenly I heard a noise! ‘’BOOM went the storm’’ as Vanessa got a fright the door was moving as slow as it could going to shut. Vanessas mum Efilona was calling for Vanessa as she disappeared. Efilona was panicking as her heart started to beep fast as it could. ‘’VANESSA VANESSA’’ Efilona  shouted as her face turned RED.

‘’I’m back’’ said Vanessa, as her mum Efilona said ‘’Phew where have you been my loving daughter’’. ‘’OH mum I have been to my best friends house Boaza’’. Efilona said ‘’Vanessa you tell me where you're going next time’’, as Vanessa ran up to her mum and hugged her. The ceiling was leaking as Efilona told Vanessa to ‘’get the bucket’’ running as fast as she could to get the bucket Vanessa tripped on the steps as, she heard ghost sounds calling her name  ‘’V A N N E S S A’’ quietly. She sprinted back to her mum crying in tears. Her mum asked her ‘’what happened?’’ but Vanessa couldn’t explain.

Later on as Vanessa stopped crying her mum went to check the steps but no one was their. ‘’HELP HELP’’ cried Vanessa as her mother ran back to check on her, but as soon as she got their Vanessa was gone.

We learn skills like pasting the ball popping it and drop kicking it.  We always fail it but some people always gets it perfect. But the most important thing to do when you start is a warm up.

Fun Run

Everyday except Monday after morning tea time we always run around the whole reserve to practice for cross country coming up next term. Because the teachers said practice makes it perfect.

As we waited for the teachers to tell us when we start we justed started to talk to our friends, Off we all went sprinting around the whole entire field pasting ourselves. Not like the other people sprinting off like they were in a real race and then they stop half way. Passing other people who stop because they were tired made me and my friend Vanessa laugh.

As we got down to where the beach was we had to make a stop because of me. I was puffing a huffing because I was so tired. I said ‘’ When we get past the goal post we run’’ to my friend vanessa as she replied back and said ‘’Okay’’ and smiled.

As we nearly got to the finish line we said ‘’come a tie’’. So as we ran threw the gates we came 1st our of the girls. As we cross the gates with victory we started to laugh. That made my day.

Reading Reflection 2


TITLE: Flossie Teacakes Holiday
AUTHOR:Hunter Davies
PAGES:21- 30
DATE:15 May 2013

This story is like my life because I always touch my sister stuff without permission.

Why did she change her name for?
Because she wanted to.

How does she turn 16 years old when she wears the big warm puffy coat? And WHY? Because this story is not based on a true story but some bits are.


On a Cold day the whole lot of Pt England school were wondering who was coming to our school.  I thought it was John Key who was coming but until Mr Burt had told us it was ‘’WILL.I.AM’’, Everybody was overwhelmed talking about him saying that he was a famous person who is a singer in a song called ‘’Scream and shout’’. Which I didn’t know who he was until Mr Burt showed the whole school a picture of him.
Some people were counting down from 10 to 0 seconds waiting for him to walk in threw the doors. Finally he walked threw the doors, Cameras were clicking the light were bright that I got a fright. Seeing WILL.I.AM made me wanting to seach his name on google, People shouting and screaming loud made my ears hurt.  

As he took a set next to the stage. Vivienne and Patrick came up and done their karakia in their own language. Vivienne done her karakia in Tongan and Patrick done his one in Maori. After they had down their karakia the Kapahaka people came on. WILL.I.AM was supraised that he did’nt  know they were performing for him. Later on after the maori group had finished the hip hop people came on they performed to him as well.

After they had finished WILL.I.AM stood up and told us about his family. He told us a story about his mum raised him without seeing his father, It made me think about my dad which is in australia. It was a sad story which he had told us. After he had told us lots about his family he brang out a check which had $100.000.00 dollars which had been promoted to the Manaiakalani Education Trust.

He didn’t want to go back to his home town without leaving something behind, He said without leaving something behind he might have wondered that will be sad. Who knows why doesn’t he want to leave anything behind?. He said that with the money you could by apps,Ipads,Computers and also Laptops.

People were wondering how come he is here. I thought that he was here because he liked our school work. But then then Mr Burt and The teachers told us why did he come. They said that he liked our school because he wants us to learn about SCIENCE, ENGINEERING  and also MATHS. WHY? Because he wants us to become what we want to in our early life.
